WaterHub is a modular and integrated infrastructure solution that caters to the needs of urban slum communities with little access to basic services. It enables access to bio-based infrastructure services like sanitation, waste water treatment, energy generation, food production and even social services. The focus is on enhancing efficiency and recycling by closing the urban water, food, waste and energy loops through the use of novel technologies that are integrated and bundled (combining different modules) in one system. It therefore includes agricultural production with aeroponics, water recycling for non-potable use, nutrient recovery from organic waste, community services (toilet, shower, public kitchen health service, education etc), drinking water treatment, energy recovery from wastewater and organic waste etc. WaterHubs for individual neighbourhoods can serve from 5,000 to 50,000 people and can expand in the form of a distributed network.
